NEW STINGRAY IN TODAY! only payed 650 Natural finish, maple neck, 3 band eq. exactly what i wanted at 400 bucks less. Barely any noticably dings in it at all. Also got case and strap w/locks with it. Will post pics as soon as i can. Oh yeah where can i get pickguards for stingrays... i dont really like the simple black and would rather get something a bit more exotic like that turtleshell one.
